I can never figure out how to correctly write romanized Korean names. Commonly, Korean names are three syllables, starting with their last name, followed by a two-syllable first name. Is the second syllable in their first names capitalized or not? I know, these silly problems of mine! Continue reading
I found this recipe online, and it got my interest because the ingredients needed are already in my pantry! I decided to give it a try as I haven’t cooked anything yet that had this ingredient in it: ketchup! We have always used ketchup at home as a dip for fried dishes, but never as an ingredient to make something, so I was excited to do the recipe and see how it comes out. Continue reading
I’m not really a professional cook, I just like working in the kitchen and preparing food my family enjoys. 🙂 I know this dish isn’t new, but allow me to share the method I use to make it (I don’t promise it to be original). This red sinigang is a nice twist to your usual sinigang, especially if you or your family tend to get tired of the same old formula. 😉 Continue reading
Honestly, it seems like all they ever release these days are romantic comedies. It’s tiring to see the same plot both in TV and the movies, but I decided to give this a shot, for the sole reason that I like Arci Muñoz. It can’t be that bad, right? My personal experience dictates that Star Cinema movies are of good quality, so I hoped that this would be worth my time. Continue reading
Nope! This isn’t about me. Hahaha. This is the title of a Chinese series that aired in 2015, which I’m watching now.
I found the show by accident through Viki, an app for streaming videos of Asian dramas (predominated by Korean and Taiwanese), Bollywood films, and anime. I was actually searching for a new Korean drama I can watch (the last one I’ve watched being Descendants of the Sun), but none of the uploads seem to be available in my country. Viki showed me My Best Ex-Boyfriend as a suggestion, and it caught my attention because the thumbnail is a shot of Jerry Yan (insertI’m a big Meteor Garden fan spiel here). It didn’t take much to convince me to give the show a try, especially after hearing the song of the opening credits–I instantly loved it. Continue reading
I honestly don’t know. I used to maintain a blog during my singlehood; in fact, I’ve had a lot of blogs during my teenage years, but there’s one I’ve stuck with for quite a long time — it’s hosted by BlogSpot, and it’s still up even though I haven’t posted an entry for a while (it isn’t public, too, because I tend to post things that I wouldn’t even dare tell my closest friends). Back then, I blogged about anything and everything under the sun, and by anything and everything I meant exactly that. You see, blogs were popular in a time where social media sites aren’t. No Facebook, no problem. You post your pictures and reviews on whatever and commentaries on current events on your blog. No Twitter, no problem. You want just a short rant about the traffic, post it on your blog (there’s no character limit!). No Instagram, no problem. Nobody cared about filters and fades on the photos up on your blog.

This is my first ever post as a reviewer so please bear with me. 🙂
My eating routine during workdays usually includes me buying breakfast food every morning, around 9 AM. I buy food even if I had eaten breakfast at home, and even if I’m not that hungry. I just love breakfast food. I mean, there are times I crave for breakfast food even if it’s in the middle of the day! I usually eat tapsilog for lunch, cereal for dinner… but that’s probably best for another entry.
So today, my breakfast-food-loving self wandered into this newly-opened pastry shop called The Breadery, which is located just beside our office’s building. Prior to visiting the store, I was already informed by some coworkers that, although delicious, their prices were a little expensive compared to your usual bakeshops. However, that didn’t stop me because I was really in the mood for some filling pastries, which I wanted to pair with my baon Great Taste White Coffee. :)) Continue reading
